Hypnotherapy really helps you lose weigh without ever being hungry
At least 2.8 million adults die each year as a result of being overweight or obese. You don’t want to be one of them.
If you weigh 20% more than your ideal weight, you are considered overweight.
Being overweight can become a matter of life and death. People who are overweight are more likely to develop a number of potentially serious health problems such as: high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, abnormal blood fats increasing the level of LDL (bad) cholesterol, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, gallstones and weak pelvic muscles. They have a higher risk of developing many different kinds of cancer. People who are overweight have difficulty breathing, walking, or sitting.
Most people don’t know why they gain weight. Some would say “I eat very little but I am still gaining weight. I have no idea why?” They might very well telling the truth, not realizing that, they might be eating the ‘wrong foods,’ such as lots of carbohydrates, sugary foods and bread. Especially if they are not getting enough exercise, you will gain weight.
By answering the questions below, you will find out the ‘reason’ why you are gaining weight.
Do you eat a lot of sweets?
Do you eat bread and pasta?
Do you eat a lot of carbohydrate?
Do you eat a lot of starchy foods?
Do you eat vegetables everyday?
Do you eat junk food and fast food?
Do you eat when you want to be social?
Do you eat to reward or punish yourself?
Do you drink 1-2 litters of water everyday?
Do you exercise everyday for at least 30 minutes?
Do you eat when you are sad, happy, bored, stressed or lonely?
Then it’s time to change your eating habits and life style. Hypnotherapy can help you re-program your mind so you can take control over food, instead of food controlling you.
Did you know that the size of your stomach is actually the same size as your fist? Eating a fist size amount of food is all your body needs. The rest is stuffing and unnecessary…

HOW CAN YOU LOSE WEIGHT?
You can safely lose two or more pounds a week with a healthy diet and lots of exercise. This is how:
Eat vegetables, skinless poultry breasts, fish, and 95% lean meat
Limit sugar, salt, starches, carbohydrates, junk food, fast food, bread, pastries, sodas
Eat only from a plate, while seated at a table. No grazing in front of the ‘fridge’
Get tempting and fattening foods out of your home
Stay busy; Don’t eat just because you’re bored
Drink plenty of water
Eat smaller quantities
Don’t skip meals
Starvation diets may result in rapid weight loss, but this type of weight loss can be unsafe and is almost impossible to maintain for most people. When food intake is severely restricted (below approximately 1,200 calories per day), the body begins to adapt to this state of poor nutrition by reducing its metabolic rate, potentially making it even more difficult to lose weight. It is also possible to experience hunger pangs, bouts of hypoglycemia, headaches, and mood changes from overly stringent dieting. These symptoms can result in binge eating and weight gain.
If you have to lose weight, it’s important to do so slowly. Aim for losing about 2 pounds a week.
Weigh yourself twice a day; morning and evening. This will help keep you conscious of your weight loss goals and aware of the natural variability. It’s OK if your weight goes up and down a bit as long as the average keeps going down.
Try starting with a weight loss of 10 percent of your current body weight over 6 months. This is the healthiest way to lose weight and importantly it offers the best chance of long term success.
It all sounds good but I have neither have the will power to eat healthy nor motivation to exercise!
That’s when hypnosis come in the picture to give you the will power and the motivation you need.
How does hypnotherapy help me lose weight and what should I expect?
Helps you increase your self esteem and confidence – Building self esteem and confidence is very important for weight loss.
Gives you motivation to exercise – You will enjoy exercising. It will no longer be a burden.
Helps you stop eating sugary foods – Isn’t that almost everyone’s weakness?
Gives you will power to stop eating the wrong foods – Hypnosis will help you eat healthy foods in smaller amounts.
Helps you stop overeating – Overeating is usually an automatic, anxiety-based coping behavior. It tends to occur frequently and repetitively without your having much conscious control over it. You may overeat in many different situations without realizing you have done so until after the fact. Hypnosis will help you stop overeating.
Eliminates emotional eating – The majority of people who are overweight eat emotionally. They eat in response to bad emotions such as boredom, stress, loneliness etc. Hypnosis will discover and uncover underlying and unconscious emotional factors that cause you to overeat or make poor food choices when you are stressed, anxious, bored, depressed, and so forth. Once these emotional eating factors are made conscious, the hypnosis will help you change them to more positive motivators so you can make better choices under stress. Hypnosis changes the way you think about food.
Stops mindless eating – People who are overweight tend to think about food too often, eat too fast, and end up eating even when they aren’t hungry at all. Hypnosis will help you eat slower and consume fewer calories.
Stops self-sabotage – There are two aspects of self-sabotage. Part of you wants to lose weight, and the other part of you sabotages your efforts. Hypnosis will help both parts work together for the best outcome.
Help you reprogram your eating and exercise habits – With hypnosis, you can reprogram your brain like a computer, and develop healthier ways of losing weight.
You are also taught how to harness the power of self-hypnosis so that you can enter this state of focused concentration on your own to meditate on your goals and your new self image.
In order to be successful with losing weight with hypnosis, you must be realistic, patient and persistent. Expecting overnight success would be unrealistic with any weight loss program.
By repeatedly listening to your hypnotherapist’s suggestions over and over again the messages get through to the subconscious control center in your brain. This helps to re-program your eating and exercise habits, your body image, and your self image.
It is really important that you are really ready and willing to lose the weight. If you are resistant and overly doubtful, hypnotherapy won’t work for you.
Join millions of men and women who lost weight with hypnotherapy all over the world. Enjoy taking charge of your life by becoming healthier and happier. Imagine your self getting thinner, your clothes getting loose, the compliments you will be receiving, and the attention you will be getting.
Weight loss usually requires 10 sessions, depending on your weight.
Most hypnotherapists charge based on how much you want lose. If you want to lose more than 20 lbs. you might be charged almost double. My low fee has no weight limit.
Please note that you must complete your sessions for reinforcement of eating healthy and exercising.
Other methods of losing weight:
Some people get a ‘laparoscopic gastric banding surgery’ to lose weight when all kind of diets, pills, even starving themselves fail. The ‘laparoscopic gastric banding is surgery’ helps people lose weight. The surgeon places a band around the upper part of your stomach to create a small pouch to hold food. After restrictive surgery, a person feels full faster, eats less, and loses weight.
Gastric banding surgery involves the following:
Using laparoscopic tools, the surgeon places an adjustable silicone band around the upper part of the stomach. Squeezed by the silicone band, the stomach becomes a pouch with about an inch-wide outlet. After banding, the stomach can only hold about an ounce of food.
A plastic tube runs from the silicone band to a device just under the skin. Saline (sterile salt water) can be injected or removed through the skin, flowing into or out of the silicone band. Injecting saline fills the band and makes it tighter. In this way, the band can be tightened or loosened as needed. This can reduce side effects and improve weight loss.
Gastric banding surgery side effects and health risks:
Although gastric bands are highly successful in many cases, like any surgery, it has risks and side effects. The risks of this surgery include infections, blood clots, pneumonia, and leakage around the reconnected stomach. Around 80% of patients will experience unpleasant side effects such as nausea and regurgitation of food. After the initial post-surgery risks have passed, you’ll still need to watch out for complications. Later complications can include the development of a hernia or bowel obstruction. Band slippage and erosion around the band site are uncommon complications, but can occur. Either of these problems will require more surgery to correct. In addition to this, those who do not adjust well to the band may have to have it removed which again means more discomfort.
The cost of this type of surgery is approximately $30,000.
What is ‘Gastric band HYPNOTHERAPY’ and why is it great?
The good news is that you can have only the positive affects of this surgery, without actually having any surgery. It is called ‘Gastric band hypnotherapy. ‘Gastric band hypnotherapy involves the use of hypnotherapy neuro linguistic programming (NLP) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques, positive suggestions and visualization to convince individuals that they have had a gastric band fitted but without the fears, risks, cost and side effects of going through the actual surgical procedure. The gastric virtual band procedure does not require surgery, and hence, there is no physical trauma or need for hospitalization. One of the key benefits of hypnotherapy is that it will also help to address and eliminate any emotional and psychological issues which have caused an individual to begin over eating in the first place. Eliminating these issues means maintaining a healthy weight permanently. Isn’t that great?
How is this ‘hypnotic operation done?’
The procedure is intended to mimic that of the real surgical procedure, implementing the use of sound and smell to make the experience more authentic. In a state of deep relaxation, your subconscious can then be accessed and you will be far more susceptible and receptive to positive suggestions.
You will then be taken through the operation step by step and throughout the entire procedure from being put under the anesthetic, to the first incision, to the closing off the gastric band to having the final stitch put in.
Though you will be deeply relaxed, you will still remain aware of what’s going on around you.
What happens after this procedure?
With the hypnotic gastric band you will eat less and feel full with just a mouthful of food.
This procedure will force you to change your eating habits. Each time when you eat something unhealthy and fattening, your body will react and serve as a reminder of what you should not be eating. If you try to eat more, you will feel very uncomfortable as the upper part of your stomach registers as full. Then you will immediately stop eating. You will no longer tolerate greasy, heavily processed foods or sugar.
Craziest things people do to lose weight
Some people just do the craziest things to lose weight. Please do NOT try any of these crazy diet ideas. It is very dangerous!
You don’t have to eat cotton balls! That’s right; it’s exactly what it sounds like. Models dip cotton balls in orange juice and eat them until they feel full. It is a very unhealthy and dangerous way of trying to lose weight.
You don’t have to do a ‘K-E Diet’ which consists of running a feeding tube through your nose that gives you just enough of a feeding solution to keep you alive and eat away fat in a very short amount of time. People who are on this crazy diet plan have to wear the tube and carry the bag of feeding fluid with them.
You don’t have to swallow Tapeworms! The tapeworm diet involves swallowing a live tapeworms and letting them eat the food for you. It may lead to weight loss but there’s an equally good chance of it leading to malnutrition, diarrhea, anemia and organ damaging cysts. If you are still not grossed out by the disgusting-looking, creepy, wiggly, ribbon-shaped parasites living inside you and laying million of eggs, then do note that worms crawl in, the worms crawl out…
You don’t have to have a plastic mesh surgically sewn onto your tongue to make making eating solid food painful like Marlene Beltran and Lysander Lanuza, to lose weight
Weight Loss by Sharon G, from Virginia Beach, Virginia
Megan, I hope you know that I think of you as one of God’s angels on earth to watch over and support me. I am so glad I found you. Whenever I see your beautiful comments on Facebook, and see your smile, I can’t help but smile. You are a positive energy for me.
Weight Loss by James L, US Army Major from Chicago
Hi Megan, I am doing well with your suggestions. Appetite is much more manageable, drinking a ton of water, and work out instincts are sharpened. As a whole family we eat vegetable rich and less fatty meals now. Thankfully, the technique you taught me for self-hypnosis has served me well in several situations — some involving eating but others have helped me show more patience at work and at home. All in all, have done well with drinking lots of water. I hear the way you poured it, and am ready for a tall glass of cool, clean water. I can’t thank you enough for helping me accept the need to drink lots of water, exercise regularly and move forward in my life with much more confidence in how I look and feel as I move! Thank you for you help! I am down 17 pounds … Your lifelong fan, James L, US Army Major from Chicago

What was your problem? I had tremors in my foot, couldn’t sleep at night and weight loss.
How long have you had this problem? Tremors – 1 year, weight loss – a life long struggle
How did problem affect your life?
The tremors made it difficult to stand, walk, or get/stay asleep. I have always had a weight problem as long as I can remember.
What have you tried to fix this problem prior to seeing Megan?
I have tried every diet known to man. I have lost and gained/regained weight more times than I can remember.
How did your life change after your sessions with Megan?
Megan helped me to see weight loss in a different way and given my tools to work through issues. I lost 16 pounds in 9 weeks. I have been able to maintain the loss and continue to lose weight slowly. I feel so much better after Megan’s sessions. She treated me as a whole person, not just by my symptoms. I have learned relaxation techniques that have helped immensely with my ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. The tremors turned out to be a medical condition and are being treated effectively.
Weight Loss by Mary A from Chesapeake, Virginia
Good News; No Fast Food, No Ice Cream, No Chips, No Candy, No Fried Foods, and Only Water. I eat a protein bar for breakfast, and then a salad and soup for dinner with plenty of water. I can’t drink anything but water. I’ve cut out all fattening, greasy foods. The thought of fast food, greasy and fatty foods makes me want to gag & vomit. Ice Cream is no longer a concern; I can’t even go near it. Right now I’m living off water, Ensure Meal Shakes and Protein Bars to get through each day. And use my Tread climber every morning. I’ve been losing about 5 lbs a week.
I know that I came to you for weight loss, but I also feel better emotionally, I’ve been freed from my guilt from my past. Thank you so much for all your help. I really appreciate all you have done for me.
Weight loss by Anne from Virginia Beach
I have never written a testimonial before and for many reasons. But this one came to me very easily. I have struggled most of my life with weight issues and more recently with stress and anxiety. I am a mother, a wife, and a teacher. In these roles it is so easy to put myself last and let these issues take over my life. I bought into every diet program and book the industry has to offer only to feel like a failure as a result. Not only did I buy into diet programs but I also bought many self help books that I thought would be the answer for me. The books got dusty- I was not changing. One day I realized that maybe I needed to kick my self-sabotaging bad habits by changing from the inside. I looked into hypnotherapy on line and found Megan. It took me several weeks to get up the nerve to call her, but when I did I knew I was on the right path. It was like talking to an old friend. She made everything so easy and comfortable. I finally felt proud of myself for taking this positive step toward self improvement. I found my first session incredibly relaxing. I laughed, cried, and when I got home that night I wanted to exercise and did! Megan gave me daily strategies to use that truly work for me. I am not going to say that it doesn’t take effort on my part as I am losing this weight- it takes work every day. However, I feel like a heavy burden has been lifted off of me. I don’t walk around beating myself up and taking everything so seriously. I am calmer and I laugh more. I know that I am working toward a goal that is absolutely attainable. I feel like I have walked out of a dark room. The best part is that I am making healthy choices everyday. I want to take care of myself. Thanks Megan- you are my angel!
Weight loss by Kathy D from Hampton
I was struggling with my weight. I tried every diet out there and none worked. I was so frustrated. Then one of my friends recommended Megan to me. I made an appointment to see her. I have to tell you that Megan is outstanding, she is super. I achieved my desired goal weight only nine weeks after my first session with her. That is a miracle. Now I recommend her to all my friends and everyone else out there who is struggling with their weight.
Weight loss by Chris P from Suffolk
After retiring from the Navy I started to gain some weight and my wife did not like that. I tried a few diets but had a very hard time sticking to it. I knew that I had to eat healthy and exercise but just couldn’t do it. My main problem was that I was bored and didn’t have the motivation to get out of the house do things and exercise. I heard from many people that they lost weight through hypnosis. When I heard that the Navy started to use hypnosis for stop smoking, I knew that hypnosis had to be effective. I searched online and found Megan. She patiently answered all of my questions, explained the whole procedure and what to expect. I have to say that her fee was also very reasonable. After the first session I bought my first exercise machine. I am back in shape now and feel great. Also, I am not bored anymore because I joined to a local animal shelter as a volunteer.
Weight loss by Brittney D from Norfolk
This is another weight loss testimonial. I don’t really have an exciting story to tell. I was searching on line when I came across Megan’s website. When I read about her being such an animal lover and volunteering at the animal shelters I had to choose her. I am glad that I did. She is wonderful. Yes I lost all the weight.
Weight loss by Dr. M from Virginia Beach
My name is Paul. I am a doctor. I heard about Megan from her primary care physician I went to see her to lose some weight. As a doctor I knew that I should eat healthy, drink lots of water and exercise. That’s what I tell my patients but due to a lack of motivation, it is not easy to do. Some of us (yes, even doctors) don’t always have strong will power. I was impressed with Megan’s professionalism. As a doctor, I knew that losing weight takes time and effort on my part. She told me that my success will depend on my willingness and that she doesn’t have a magic wand to make my extra weight go away overnight. I think she has the magic wand. There is something angelic about her as she was a born hypnotherapist. I eat and drink healthy now and exercise at least one hour every day. Losing weight is a lengthy process and needs consistency and patience. It took some time, but I lost the extra weight. Megan is a great person and a great hypnotherapist. She is kind, sincere, knowledgeable and experienced. I recommend her to my patients now for weight loss, cigarette cessation and anything else they might need help. By the way, her price is pretty affordable.
Weight Loss by Mark T from Virginia Beach
Dear Megan, again it was a pleasure to meet you. You have a special glow that put me at ease. What a great session it was… such a feeling of being renewed. I lost 12 pounds (yeah) since last 3 weeks after 2 sessions. I look forward to seeing you again. Thank you Megan and have a great day.
Weight Loss by Erin M from Virginia Beach
It was a wonderful experience. I have been doing very well. After the session I immediately went to Rite Aid and got some water and I stopped at the grocery store and got some healthy snacks and whole fruits and veggies. I go to the gym now. I take lunch to work and drink all my water before I get off from work. Oh, and I eat breakfast. How cool is that? I’m very exited to see what the next month will bring. I keep thinking about the 115 lb. I’m very excited and not giving in to temptation. Ohhh…. Today they had an ice cream social at work. And I turned down ice cream cake. I see myself toned and fit and ice cream will not get me there. I was so proud of myself. I lost 4 lbs last week after just one session…
